DENVER, May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will discuss water professionals' role in protecting public health during a keynote address at the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE08) at 9 a.m., June 9, in Atlanta, Georgia.

As one of the leading public health experts in the world, Gerberding will speak about the ways that the drinking water and medical communities can work together to help increase public knowledge of the science of water. She also will discuss the wide scope of work being done at CDC to prevent waterborne disease.
